At some point you just have to commit to the distance

trailwalker ultra hike charity (286)

I have practiced enough.

And it is time for me to commit to the Trailwalker. 100km over the South Downs Way and an overall ascent of 2,500m – the same climb as Ben Nevis and Snowdon combined.

Luckily, I’ve already done the Three Peaks, so the height isn’t an issue. 25 hours non-stop walking, including a night without sleep, might well be.

I’m giving every penny that I raise, and many toenails for Oxfam.
